3 Reasons Soy Is Not A Healthy Food Alternative

Everything you know about soy is from years of big marketing telling you what they wanted you to think…that soy is a super food. Soy is not the super food we've all been led to believe.
  1. Approximately, 95% of all soy in the United States are GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms). A GMO is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. What can GMOs do to you…
    • Food Allergies
    • Toxicity
    • Infertility
    • Gluten Disorders
    • Birth Defects
    • Cancer
    • to name just a few.
  2. Soy contains phytoestrogens, which are estrogen mimickers in the body. When women consume too much phytoestrogens it can cause cervical cancer, breast cancer, PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) and hormonal imbalances. If you are a woman going through perimenopause or menopause and are estrogen dominant this could be a double whammy. When males consume too much phytoestrogens they start to exhibit feminine characteristics (think man-boobs).
  3. Phytic acid in soy reduce assimilation of calcium, magnesium, copper, iron and zinc. Phytic acid in soy is not neutralized by ordinary preparation methods such as soaking, sprouting, and long, slow cooking.

    Bottom line…stop eating soy, especially if you are estrogen dominant.
